The service here was good but that's about all that's good. Probably the most bland and lacking-in-effort Indian food I've had in Joburg. I left with the feeling that maybe everyone who cooks for their families feels like they can also open a restaurant nowadays.

The menu is fairly extensive, with a great selection of favourite starters and mainly chicken and lamb curries for mains. The wine list is modest, but reasonably priced and caters for most tastes.

Great choice from mild to wild at excellent value. My digestive system cannot accommodate spicy / hot dishes and the mild option I chose was full of flavour. This was our first visit and will definitely not be the last

The butter chicken is one of the best in Joburg. Such a good little gem of a restaurant, we have never had a bad experience.

Dec 23 lunch: Hunt for great Indian food took us to this place. This is a nice breezy place on the 1st floor. Being a weekday afternoon, we were among the few tables occupied. Started off with beers to cool down. They have Naked Mexican beer - a must try. The paneer tikka and chilli chicken tasted good. The paneer... More

Went there for dinner based on reading a few good reviews. Wasn't disappointed. Tasty indian food, good service. Overall a good night! Portions are not massive but enough. If you are a fan of Indian food it's a good place to try!

Really good Indian food! REALLY good service! Very impressed. They subscribe to "the entertainer" app which means you can get discounts if you subscribe.

The atmosphere is elegantly subdued, the food unexpectedly good and the service surprisingly discreet. We had Lamb Korma and a great starter platter, followed by green tea and good coffee. Inexpensive and delicious

This is a lovely restaurant, located in a really vibrant Centre. Everything has a touch of class. The menu is extensive and interesting - although as first time visitors, we made the conservative choices of Chicken Tikka Masala and Prawn Bhuna, plus nan breads and Aloo Gobi. The food was excellent, and came as we had ordered. We selected a... More
